    I’ve decided to continue the challenge. It’s a great incentive to keep getting outside. Did my post for today!

    I’m definately in for the Monday get outdoor posts. i agree getting outdoors daily is far easier than blogging daily. Thanks for continuing the fun.

    The challenge was a bit of a wake-up call for me. It made me realise my daughter is not getting enough ‘free time’ outdoors. So i’ve been making an effort to give her more unstructured outdoor time. Thanks for the inspiration :-)

    I’m in on the outdoor challenge! It will be easier to post a picture once a week.

    I think this is a terrific idea especially since if it was hard for me to post each day I could only imagine that it would have been 100 times harder for you…plus I bet you then felt obligated to look at everyone’s post.

    It is easy for us to get outside every day too, sometimes it can be harder to get the girls to come inside. I think the Monday challenge sounds great, I would love to continue!

    I’ll join in the outdoor challenge when I get back in a couple of weeks – off to see my parents. But Marcus and I had an exciting day yesterday – went down to the river to watch them trapping baby eels (glass eels) as they’re migrating up into the streams. They weigh them, take data on water temperature, etc. and then turn them back in to let them go on about their growing. He loved it – got to “help” one of the college students. They’ll be doing this through the end of the month so we’ll definitely go again, and next time I’ll remember to take pictures.

  17. Becca

    I’d like to continue the challenge on Mondays!

  18. Kellyi

    I’ve emailed you and yes, we are very keen to swap (being outside the US we will probably restrict ourselves to a couple of animal print casts, an unusual stone and then some photos/ diagrams/ craft ideas.

    We would also like to take part in the Monday Outdoor Challenge please.

  19. Rosina

    That’s fantastic! We’re definitely in for the Monday nature challenge :) I was actually thinking about that yesterday and we shared a weekly outing on my blog. We were hunting for frogs :) http://rosinahuber.blogspot.com/2010/05/nature-walk-along-puntledge.html

    So happy you are going to keep it going. We loved doing it all last month!

  20. Stephinie ~ Gypsy Mama

    we’re sending an email to you too :) I loved the challenge of getting outside, which we did….. but all to often I did not make time to get back inside to post! I love the idea of posting weekly, we’ll look forward to that next year :)

    We would love to join in the Monday Outdoor Challenge. The April challenge was great fun.

    I loved the exchange of ideas. The children and I really enjoyed seeing the animals and plant life in other parts of the world. My list of places I would like to visit has grown exponentially. Happy to visit virtually for the moment. So, yeh, count us in.

    Hi everybody
    We’re up for the Monday challenge! We get outdoors everyday and post our activities on the water and outdoors a couple of times a week on our blog if we can, new baby arriving soon though so computer time will be scarce for a while.
    Angelina, maybe we could do an Aus nature swap? I’m in Sydney NSW, although I guess we’d have to check the interstate quarantine rules?

    Hi Lisa
    We ended up missing participating in the April outdoor challenge as we have a new babe in our family and have been enjoying some babymoon time. We are outdoors every day as always and would love to keep up with the Monday outdoor challenge!

  40. Lisa C

    I’m a little hesitant to say yes on the challenge because last month burned me out on the posting! But I’m also under the weather right now, so maybe that’s why. Can I let you know later?

    We are in for the Monday Great Outdoor Challenge as well. I just loaded it into my calendar in hopes of remembering. Hopefully our lives settle down soon, School is ending in a couple weeks. Thank goodness.

  47. Christie

    That is so exciting. We are definitely in. What a great idea.

  48. angelina

    hi lisa, lots of places (tasmania being a very strict one) will not allow any plant material of any kind: this is to protect their local habitat via quarantine. so this is probably only a u.s. game to play. love the crocus shot**
